It's Valentine's Month! And what better month to meditate on God's love for us than this month. So cut our your paper hearts and locate your paper doilies (if only in your imagination) to help us remember the greatest love every known. The greatest Lover of our souls that exists in all eternity. [Gushy and sappy enough for ya? ;). Honestly, sometimes when I get caught up in it I do feel like a hopeless romantic. Except I'm not hopeless. I've put my hope in the deepest, most powerful love we could ever know. And we don't know the half of it. It's an ongoing journey into places of His love we will never get to the end of. And it's good.]
Psalm 48:9 We have thought on Thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Thy temple.
Psalm 101:1 I will sing of lovingkindness and justice, To Thee, O LORD, I will sing praises.
Psalm 107:43 Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things; and consider the lovingkindness of the LORD.
The Psalmist talks about thinking on God's lovingkindness and singing about it. He talks about giving heed or paying attention to it. And if this is good enough to the writers of the Psalms, it should be good for us today.
If we meditate on His lovingkindness enough, perhaps our own hearts will break out into a song. Or not. Maybe poetry or prose or art or dance or whatever inspires you.
But you've gotta meditate on it a bit. You gotta get more out of it than what you have in the past, that is if you want to know Him more. His lovingkindness is unfathomable, but even so, He calls us to walk in it and know it. He calls us to try to at least fathom a part of it. Remember Ephesians 3:19 from Knowing God 4. to know the love of God which surpasses knowledge....
You gotta at least try.
